Homebridge Server Starting and Stopping

The Homebridge server continually starts and stops. I am somewhat confused as to whether or not, I have to include a username and password in the "Homebridge Buddy" configuration file. All services are on my local computer. I have tried configuring with and without a username/password - I still get the same messages.


Enabling plugin "EPS - Homebridge Buddy 1.0.1"

Re: Homebridge Server Starting and Stopping

The username and password are required if you have told Indigo web server to use a username and password. That being said, in order to diagnose the issue please post your Homebridge config and log (both can be obtained from the HBB plugin menu) so I can see what may be causing the issue. Also, if you have added and then removed HBB servers from Indigo please refer to this thread about how that may be causing an issue.

Also please try updating from 1.0.1 to the latest development release to see if that clears up your issue.

Re: Homebridge Server Starting and Stopping Fixed but More

I got this working by completely uninstalling the Homebridge Buddy plugin and then reinstalling. However, I then had another problem and it turns out that it had to do with some of my naming conventions of devices. I had forward slashes "/" in a lot of the device names which resulted in the log messages shown below. I renamed all such devices. Example of device name:

Lock All Doors Toggle (on/off) Phantom
16 Workshop/Basement Door

Snippet of Log messages:

WebServer could not find device "50%"
WebServer could not find device "Off"
WebServer could not find device "Off"
WebServer could not find device "Off"
WebServer could not find device "Off VG"
WebServer could not find device "Off VG"

WebServer could not find device "off DG"

Re: Homebridge Server Starting and Stopping

That is to be expected, the Homebridge API works through URL's so a slash or backslash has special meaning. Same for =, &, +, etc.
